Acupuncture For Amenorrhea - Treatment Protocols

Acupuncture treatment protocols are generally directed towards the deeper root of a persons set of health issues, not at each individual issue. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, treatment is generally directed towards the individuals diagnostic pattern(s) and their primary issue is only a part of the information required to approach the correct patterns to treat (see "treating the cause vs. the symptoms" for an introduction to this process.).

In designing an acupuncture protocol for amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), one might find one or a combination of the following patterns: blood stagnation, heart blood deficiency, heart yin deficiency, kidney yang deficiency, kidney yin deficiency, phlegm stagnation, spleen blood deficiency, spleen yang deficiency among many other possibilities and possible combinations.
